Big Ten PowerPoll, Week 6

The top five remain unchanged this week.  I can't drop Northwestern for losing to the best team in the conference. 
  1. Ohio State
  2. Wisconsin
  3. Northwestern
  4. Nebraska
  5. Michigan
  6. Michigan State
  7. Penn State
  8. Iowa
  9. Indiana
  10. Illinois
  11. Minnesota
  12. Purdue
The first big move is Michigan State.  We know their defense was tops, but their offense was horrid.  Nice breakout game for the Spartans on offense, but can they do it again?  Penn State stayed where they are, mostly because I wasn't sure I could move anybody else up.  Indiana hasn't been THAT impressive to this point, but if they play like that again, they could move up.

Not sure what to make of Minnesota...they hung in for a while with Michigan, but eventually fade out.  One thing is clear, the line between the top 6 and bottom 6 is becoming more and more distinct. And I can make a case for anybody in the top 6 to win in Indianapolis.
